Billy Walker – Cross the Brazos at Waco
 C
On the Chisolm Trail it was midnight
                            G7
Carmella was strong on his mind
Because of the life he had chosen
                         C
Carmella had left him behind

Too long he had been El Bandito
              C7         F
Carmella had left him alone
                             C
But today someone brought a message
         G7                       C
She had been seen in old San Antone

 F
Cross the Brazos at Waco
Ride hard and I'll make it by dawn
 C
Cross the Brazos at Waco
     G7                      C
I'm safe when I reach San Antone
          G7                       C
Tag: I'm safe when I reach San Antone

He glanced back over his shoulder
                          G7
The posse was nowhere in sight
He'd sent for Carmella to meet him
                              C
On the banks of the Brazos tonight

She was waiting and he kept the promise
                  C7        F
He'd made such a long time ago
                                C
As he dropped the guns that she hated
        G7             C
In the muddy Brazos below

Repeat #3

Then the night came alive with gunfire
                                G7
He knew that at last he'd been found
As the Rangers badge shone brightly
                       C
El Bandito lay on the ground

Carmella knew he was dying
                        C7        F
That all of her dreams were in vain
                                     C
As she kissed his lips for the last time
               G7        C
She heard him whisper again

Repeat #3
